    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's their most beloved modular, so I guess it should be selling quite well. The most surprising thing though is that the Tower Bridge is still around. I'm want it to be replaced by a newer addition to the world builng series.

    That’s exciting! DD reintroduced teal, so everything is possible

    Yeah. I can’t wait to see what will come. And I also hope I won’t be disappointed. As for my favorite modular I would have to give an unoriginal answer: Parisian Restaurant, though I really like the calmness of the PS as well. It looks great next to almost every modular I own. Although I really like the DD it doesn’t really match with the rest. And I would like some modular that will complement the Parisian Restaurant. Or something to match the Diner, like a Bauhaus (with the glass corner -OMG) or Art Deco style building. I guess now we know Lego can go in some crazy directions, so a Chinese architecture inspired set might be possible in the future (i don’t think now, 'coz this years modular was a major change too, so next year it should be a bit less desruptive)

    No-one was buing it or what? Why was it discontinued so fast? I managed to buy the PS, but the TH was already gone. It's not a bad set (mabye a bit boring), and a Town Hall is needed in every city.

    That’s why I also liked the DD. But it doesn’t fit really well with all the other modulars. What bothers me is that every floor wall is ca. 2 bricks shorter than all the other buildings. It looks more like those creator city buildings than a modular. What I would like to see is some kind of grocery store or a (super)market. The GG was released a long time ago and the people living in this imaginary city can go to the many restaurants, but can’t cook sth. for themselves. Oh. And I’m not really impressed with the idea of a service station or garage. Cars take up a lot of space and big gaping garage doors will look seriously bad. My ideal modular would be another Parisian style (this time corner) building. With this grand facade a hotel would work very well. And in the attic-like last floor they could fit something else.

    Teorethically I should be happy about the rerelease of the modular that’s at the top of my wishlist, but that would also mean Lego could rerelease some other modulars in the future, and that’s not what I would like. They would stop being as collectible as they are now. I would rather have a modular that’s inspired by the GG or just an entirely new model. Can’t wait to see what we’ll get ;)

    But if those numbers are true: 10265 - 3,93 kg - 48 x 11,8 x 28,2 cm they should result in ca. 3.500 pc (with the same pc/kg density like in DD) A lot of modular MOCs have 3.000-3.500 pieces, so I guess a 3 story corner building will work. So the price should be hovering around 205€/245$ That’s unfortunate, cause the familiar 150€ mark seemed to be a prefect balance between overall looks and price. On the other hand a 3rd in the row two story corner building would be weird.

    Yeah, and it could have been partially true. On YouTube there is a video where the designer tells that the Diner was intended to be a car dealership, but it didn’t work because of the too small footprint.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, me too, but we'll have to wait at least another month for some serious leaks to come out. Every year lego is trying harder to keep its projects secret as long as possible. I would like to know at least the name of the next modular. Every year people are guessing the same things: a post office, a police station or a museum (that are generally important to every city and should sell quite well), but they are almost never right (we partially got a bakery in AS - as a pastry shop, without bread and a policewoman in DO). I don't have any other ideas though. Maybe a supermarket (unlikely) or furniture store of some type (?). I still think a post office would fit perfectly in the series. Now we also know that the modulars can be in very different architectural styles, but I hope for a more european, Parisian Restaurant style building, especially that it should retire soon. After Palace Cinema retired we got another very American building (DD), so a 19th centry-like style modular should be released to fill the vacant spot. But please no restaurants/diners! And this building should be a corner one, so a typical parisian one would be perfect for that. I guess another idea would be 2 half size holland style building (just like Pet Shop), that would look nice next to the Market Street. IDK I'm just rambling to relieve my excitement a bit - I just hope I won't be dissappointed (I still have a "second chance" to spent my money on the roumoured world building series set and the Architecture Paris Skyline).

    OMG! A free fall tower! That will be na epic set. Just as fun as the rollercoaster, if not more! And the footprint will also be much smaller. Thanks @PrisonBrick! Are there any news about the other set numbers?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Last year I was excited for a rumored creator expert landmark set, but I was really disappointed to see a uninteresting rerelease. So now I hope I won’t be disappointed again and we will see a original set (I’m biased, cos I love Paris, so an updated Eiffel Tower I would certanly buy) I don’t really have any ideas for what could it be. Someone suggested a Chinese temple and that would be quite interesting. (They are not that big though, so it would be mini figure scale and although it would be fun, I don’t think it is what this line is about) The White House at this scale would also be almost minifigure scale (again, the same "problem") Louvre would be an interesting creation, but it’s another all TAN building. It’s high time for Tower Bridge to be retired, but saying that it will be replaced with the (gorgeous, red) Golden Gate Bridge would be just wishful thinking.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah. The same with me. Every 3 years Lego releases a new Landmark (Taj Mahal doesn’t count. In the interview Jamie said that they had an additional production slot that didn’t affect the amount of planned sets to be released), so in 2019 we are due to having one!

    If those numbers from Amazon are true: 10264 - 6,56 kg - 58,2 x 9,1 x 48 cm 10265 - 3,93 kg - 48 x 11,8 x 28,2 cm than one these sets will be bigger than AS (4,6 kg; 7,7 x 48 x 58,3 cm) According to Amazon "normal sized" modulars weigh appr. 2,8 kg meaning we could expect sets with around 5,500 pieces and 3,500 pieces. Thanks @TheLegomane for the news! And the modular building usually gets the first creator expert set number in each year, but 5,700 pieces seem too high. 3,500 for a 3 storey corner building are more reasonable. My guess would be that the first set is some kind of landmark or sth.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Has anyone else noticed the holes for pin connection on this set? This means it will be able to connect to either the big Hogwarts Castle or maybe some future sets. I like this approach Lego is starting to make: Just like with the Ninjago City and Ninjago Port.

    And all the students are kids - with short legs and this is kind of cute and I can have it, but I want normal sized minifigs in the D2C hogwarts. It's kind of cute. AND the best thing: the roof is GREY!!!
